Action Plan to Support Raising Next-Generation

The Act on Advancement of Measures to Support Raising Next-Generation Children requires companies to put together a "general business owner action plan" to improve the employment environment for employees and enable them to balance work and child-rearing, and to improve a range of working conditions for all employees. These action plans set out the period of the plan, their goals, the measures to be taken to achieve the goals, and the period of the implementation of measures, and companies with more than 100 employees are required to create, submit, publicize, and raise awareness of their own action plans.
